Survey: Filipinos most intimate people in Asia

Filipinos are most likely in Asia to share intimate moments with their partners, a recent relationship index survey released by financial firm Pru Life UK revealed.

Conducted by research company Ipsos, the study involved interviews with 5,000 respondents in China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam, and the Philippines, reported Philippine Star.

Five hundred Metro Manila residents with household incomes of at least P20,000 per month, representing approximately the top two-thirds of household incomes in Manila, reportedly took part in the online survey.

The study, which targets to gauge the state of personal relationships in Asia, further breaks down the highs and lows of Filipinos’ relationship with their loved ones, with the hope of making it better, the report said.

The relationship index reportedly indicates that Filipinos show their love for each other more than anybody else in the region. Around 87 percent say “I love you” to their partners every week, while 68 percent reportedly do so every day.

About 87 percent of Filipinos have also been presumed by the study to engage in intimate relations with their better half, which has been found to be the highest in Asia, said the news portal.

Similarly, Filipino married couples are “likely to be closely involved with each other’s finances,” with over three-quarters or 76 percent of the couples saying that they plan their finances together, while 84 percent talk about their future, it was highlighted.

Even in the US, latest reports show that relationships seem to be getting stronger as divorce rates are at their all-time low (16.9 divorces in 1,000 married women) in nearly 40 years, while marriages have been steadily increasing after years of decline. These are in spite of the shocking Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split.

In his new apostolic exhortation, “Amoris Laetitia” or On Love in the Family, Pope Francis advises couples that “The marital union is thus evoked not only in its sexual and corporal dimension, but also in its voluntary self-giving in love.”

The index claims that Filipino parents have the highest relationship score with children (59/100) than any other country in the continent, reported Philippine Star.

About 90 percent of the parents declared that they give advice to their children at least once a week. Filipino parents got the highest rate (43 percent) in Asia when it comes to giving importance on listening to their advice.

Seventy-five percent said bonding with their children is also valuable. Eighty-seven percent said they help their children in their homework every week, the report said.
